Radius Gold corrects Coyote Project model comparison, Nevada

October 1, 2018

Vancouver, Canada: Radius Gold Inc. (TSX-V: RDU) would like to announce a correction to its press releases dated August 27, 2018 and September 27, 2018 concerning its 100% owned Coyote hot-springs epithermal gold project near Elko, Nevada. No change has occurred at Coyote Project. Radius management compared the Coyote Project to Western Exploration’s recently discovered Gravel Creek Project, located 45km North of Coyote and would like to correct data associated with the project comparison.

Coyote Project Comparison

Information on the Gravel Creek Gold-Silver Deposit was published in New Concepts and Discoveries: Geological Society of Nevada 2015 Symposium, O.D Christensen and J.G. Cleary. Geology and Discovery History of the Gravel Creek Silver-Gold Deposit, Elko County, Nevada. From that paper Radius published drill hole assays where silver assays were mistakenly published as gold assays. Radius management apologizes for this error. The corrected significant gold assays from the Gravel Creek Project as published in New Concepts and Discoveries: Geological Society of Nevada 2015 Symposium are:

Hole From (m) To (m) Length (m) Au (ppm)
WG373 480.1 534.9 54.9 2.42
WG374 457.2 501.4 44.2 5.72
WG375 583.7 650.7 67.0 1.27
WG376 239.3 242.3 3.0 6.19
WG377 600.5 611.1 10.7 10.98
WG379 480.1 489.2 9.1 41.15
WG380 443.5 510.5 67.1 2.77

Radius recently received drill permits for the Coyote Project and is planning a drill program that will target deeply penetrating resistive structures identified by CSAMT geophysical survey, co-incident with rock and soil geochemical gold-antimony-arsenic-mercury anomalies within a surficial sinter hot spring environment.
